CHARLESTOWN â€“ The Town Council voted unanimously Monday night to create an ad hoc committee that will look into solutions, both permanent and temporary, for the facilities at the Charlestown and Blue Shutters town beaches.
The new year has started and for one committed group of student athletes a new tradition has begun.
The Coventry High School indoor track team participated on Jan. 1 in the polar bear plunge that takes place locally and all across the country.
Their group specifically, took part in the Newport Polar Bearâ€™s Plunge raising money for A Wish Come True.
The pessimist sees the glass as half empty. The optimist sees the glass as half full.
Patricia Raskin, host of the â€śPatricia Raskin Positive Livingâ€ť radioÂ show on WPRO 630 AM, canâ€™t sit still without filling that glass to the top, while bringing a tray of other filled glasses for guests.
Raskin, an East Greenwich resident, is launching a new radio show on AM 790 WPRV, called â€śPositive Business with Patricia Raskin,â€ť which airs on Jan. 7. The West Hartford, Conn. native puts such a positive spin on things, it can get dizzying.
